Arizona’s utility regulators to review shutoffs after death
PHOENIX (AP) – Arizona utility regulators say they want an investigation and comprehensive review of electric and other utilities policies after a customer died last year when her power was cut off because she was $51 behind on her bill.
Arizona Corporation Commissioners Boyd Dunn and Justin Olson joined in the request. Commissioner Bob Burns separately filed a letter Friday seeking emergency rules that would stop disconnections when it is extremely hot. The commission meets Thursday.
